Youth & Hysteria Artist Spotlight: Michael Weferling

My love for good music ranges from the most popular artists to the ones who are vying for their time in the spotlight to showcase their talents.

This artist spotlight focuses on Michael Weferling, a Northeastern University senior who is looking to make his mark on the Pop world. His latest single, “Soldier For Our Love”, is a heavy dose of Pop with hints of Sky Ferreira-esque electronic synths that makes it suitable for international clubs. The song talks about love – a welcomed subject in the Pop realm today. But it isn’t at all cutesy – Weferling wants listeners to fight and overcome love, not just to accept it.

Yet the flaws with the single comes courtesy of the production. Weferling’s voice, while confident, does not mesh well with the slightly timid background of rhythmic beats. The synths are delicate, so the vocals tend to overwhelm it. With more blending and clarity, the single can definitely find itself on radio or spun at a club in Brooklyn and the Lower East Side.

Weferling (originally from Camden, Maine) has always wanted to be a performer and looked to artists like Mariah Carey, Seal and Madonna as inspirations. At Northeastern University, he is a music industry major who spends his spare time recording with his band.

When he’s not recording his own material, Weferling likes to record covers of classic hits. Check out his cover of No Doubt’s “Underneath It All” below:
